Actually only "1190" US, '79 models (9309800011 to 9309801200).

1979 model year (to August 1979) - 806
1980 model year (continue 1979 series) - 384

Hmmm, so I've thought my car was #12 of the US production run for sometime.. However, in a recent discussion about about production numbers with a couple of folks, one of which owns car #461, and a closer look at the numbering system.. it appears that my car is actually car #2, the second 930 produced for the 78 production run! Build date 9/77.

onboost,

Yes, your car would be #2 of 451 produced in 1978 for the US.

1978 930 US VIN’s 9308800011 to 9308800461
* Source, Porsche 911 Turbo 3 and 3.3 Litre; Project no. 930, Michel Cotton, Osprey, 1988

While we’re on the subject, isn’t it a misnomer to call these cars “sunroof delete” as it was an option for the 930 (sort of like saying “limited slip delete")? How about, “rare non-sunroof optioned US 930”?

OK, I like that better. Here's a couple of pictures of my '78 "rare non-sunroof optioned US 930"

Rich, good catch and another point I wanted to make as well... I don't know where this "sunroof delete" terminology came from.. a newer model 911 series I suspect.. but you are correct.. sunroof was an option, so if you didn't pay for the "optional" sunroof, your car didn't get produced with it. Simple.
